StitchyBear Scrap Recipe Page

Hi Stampers!

SURPRISE! I finally had a chance to participate this week in our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge! I have really missed being able to play along in our challenges :)

This week we have a special Guest Sponsor, StitchyBear who provided each Design Team member a digi of their choice to create a sample for the challenge! It was hard to pick but as soon as I seen this super adorable Baked With Love bear...I collect bears and sometimes have issues with cooking so it was a must have for me!

I am a decent cook...most days...but every once in awhile the smoke alarm is our dinner bell and my brother never lets me forget that I have a tendency to burn things sometimes :) The problem is I am usually in a hurry to get stuff done as usual and like to cook everything on high! You would think I would learn by now but I haven't - LOL!

One of my favorite crafty things to do is create Scrap Book Recipe Pages. My favorite size to create are 6x6 pages. So when I saw this set I knew I wanted to use him on a recipe page.

Here is the outside page with the recipe folder tucked away in a pocket. This week our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge is to use your favorite embellishments which I did! I LOVE crochet lace, it is one of my go to things and I seem to reach for it even more than ribbon. I also love metal embellishments so I used a Tim Holtz clip to hold my file folder closed and I also LOVE cooking and baking charms. I tend to hoard them rather than use them because I love them so much,... but I did manage to use one on my page since it is for me :) I also love doilies, die cuts, pearls & shimmer. And the creme de la creme of my favorite embellishments is Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink....I need to use it on everything I make - LOL! 

Here is a look at the recipe card pulled out....

I printed the Baked with Love sentiment twice and then cut out a cookie to layer because I wanted to add "frosting and sprinkles" I used Whipped Spackle and then sprinkled multi-color chnky glitter on it while wet and let it dry. Here is a close up so you can hopefully see the texture on it:

Here is a look at the recipe... it is for Quaker Oatmeal Scotchies which are totally delicious! I will write the recipe for you in case you can't read my chicken scratch...

The papers I used are from an Authentique Christmas set called Festive. The outside papers I used are the Vintage Cookie Cutter paper from the Cookbookin line. My recipe card and the yum scale stamp are from a Stampin Up set I have.

Here is a last look at that super cute bear...

Quaker Oatmeal Scotchies:


1 Cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups Quaker Oats uncooked (can use quick oats or old fashioned)
1 2/3 cups (11 oz.) Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Flavored Morsels


Preheat - oven to 375° F

Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; mix well. Add oats and morsels; mix well.

Drop dough by level tablespoons full on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 7 - 8 minutes for a chewy cookie. Bake 9-10 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Enjoy! I hope that you will play along in this weeks Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and show us what your favorite embellishments are!
